#GIMP-scripts ###Version 1.30 #####Copyright (c) 2013 Michael Morris

##Objective

GIMP-scripts is a collection of macros or scripts for GIMP.

  • Script-Fu / export_iOS_icons_of_image.scm
  • Script-Fu / select_round_rectangle.scm

###Script-Fu / export_iOS_icons_of_image.scm###

This Script-Fu script contains functions that non-destructively convert the active image to various user specified iOS images and app icons.

The following describes the conversion process. First, the active image is duplicated. Second, if scaling is required, scaling is applied to the duplicate image. Next, the duplicate image is exported with a name that follows the iOS naming convention ("@2x.png" for Retina images and ".png" for Non-Retina images, as well as proper iOS app icon names when exporting app icons). Finally after completion of the export, the duplicate image is destroyed. Each image generated started with a clean duplicate copy of the active image.

This script contains three functions.

  • Function Name: export-image-as-app-icons-for-devices
    Menu: File --> iOS Export --> Image as --> App Icons for Device(s) ...
    Exports the required and recommend iOS app icons for the various iOS devices and iOS display types from the active image.

    The recommended resolution of the active image is 1024 x 1024.

    The following are the possible iOS app icon filenames (and resolutions):
    iTunesArtwork@2x (1024 x 1024)
    iTunesArtwork (512 x 512)
    Icon-72@2x.png (144 x 144)
    Icon@2x.png (114 x 114)
    Icon-72.png (72 x 72)
    Icon.png (57 x 57)
    Icon-Small-50@2x.png (100 x 100)
    Icon-Small-50.png (50 x 50)
    Icon-Small@2x.png (58 x 58)
    Icon-Small.png (29 x 29)

  • Function Name: export-image-as-ios-images
    Menu: File --> iOS Export --> Image as --> Image(s) ...
    Exports an iOS Retina image and/or an iOS Non-Retina image from the active image. The resulting image(s) are scaled per user specifications.

    Scaling will be either down, up, or none, depending upon the user specified size and the active image's resolution. Scaling is either square or rectangular. Square scaling results in image(s) that have the width and height equal to the size specified. Rectangular scaling results in image(s) that have either the width or height equal to the size specified and the other dimension scaled proportionally.

    If the user specifies that both Retina and Non-Retina images are to be exported, the resolution of the resulting iOS Retina image will be equivalent to the size specified while the resolution of the resulting iOS Non-Retina image will be half of the size. If the user specifies only a Retina or only a Non-Retina image is to be exported, resulting iOS image will be equivalent to the size specified.

    The recommended resolution of the active image is equivalent to the resolution of the largest image to be exported.

  • Function Name: export-retina-resolution-image-as-ios-images
    Menu: File --> iOS Export --> Retina Resolution Image as --> Image(s) ...
    Exports an iOS Retina image and/or an iOS Non-Retina image from the active image. The active image's resolution is equivalent to that of the resulting iOS Retina image.

    The resulting iOS Retina image has the same width and height as the active image. The resulting iOS Non-Retina image has half the width and half the height as the active image.

    The recommended resolution of the active image is equivalent to that of the resulting iOS Retina image.


###Script-Fu / select_round_rectangle.scm###

The Rectangular Select Tool with Rounded corners option checked is very useful, but it could be so much more. The underlying GIMP function, gimp-image-select-round-rectangle written by Martin Nordholts provides much more functionality than what is exposed in the Rectangular Select Tool.

This script attempts to unleash gimp-image-select-round-rectangle's potential by raising the radius limit to 262144 pixels from 100 pixels and exposes the ability to specify different x and y radii.

In case you are wondering, a bug report has been submitted to "fix" the Rectangular Select Tool.

This script contains two functions.

  • Function Name: select-rectangle-with-circular-corners
    Menu: Select --> Rectangle with circular corners ...
    Creates a rectangular selection with circular corners. Makes selections like the Rectangular Select Tool with the Rounded corners option checked, however the radius limit is 262144 pixels instead of 100 pixels.

  • Function Name: select-rectangle-with-elliptical-corners
    Menu: Select --> Rectangle with elliptical corners ...
    Creates a rectangular selection with elliptical corners. Makes selections like the Rectangular Select Tool with Rounded corners option checked, however the x and y radius of the corner can be specified independently to form more of an elliptical corner rather than circular. Also the radius limit is 262144 pixels instead of 100 pixels.

##Installation

  1. Copy the scripts from the GIMP-scripts/Script-Fu directory to the GIMP scripts directory.
  2. Start GIMP
  3. In GIMP Filters --> Script-Fu --> Refresh Script
